Electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome

Dr. B. Deepti

Abstract


Today, we are living in an advanced technological world, and as we are in such technological world, we can name this period as “technology age” as well as “radiation age.” People today are bombarded with radiations from the sources they use every day such as laptops, cell phones, headphones, refrigerators, micro ovens, radio towers, televisions, satellites, broadcast antennas, and such more. The exposure to such radiations does not go away over time, in fact, it shows its effects on the body slowly based on their usage, and the effects so produced from such radiations are called as electromagnetic hypersensitivity reactions (or) electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome. The health professionals are facing challenges regarding the symptoms on prolonged exposure to frequencies of radiation (electromagnetic radiation [EMR]). Various organizations like the World Health Organization and some nation states started exploring about this clinical phenomenon to explain the prevalence of symptoms associated with non-ionizing EMR exposure. This article explains in detail regarding the common sources that produce EMR, its effects, and preventive measures to overcome such effects.
